  5. This is a fabulous card! I would've never thought to use Mount Rushmore as the subject matter for a card, but I love how yours turned out. And it's even better that the whole thing came about because of a trip you went on. I love being inspired by things we see! Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
